Picked up a copy of this 80 page booklet and scanned it to so that it doesn't get badly handled and others can have the use of this 1918 item.

I have put it on Flicker - Album here

 

I also put in on Archive.org

I bought this as Christmas present to myself with some drawlet nibs in 2017. I took the original staples out as they were rusty and damaging the paper.

 

One of the nicer things I've come across.

Several years ago I picked up an Esterbrook set of dip pen nibs, with a couple of nib holders, at a place a block or two over from Bromfield Pen Shop (the store mostly sold sports memorabilia and collectibles, but the Estie set was in the window, and caught my eye as I was walking back over to the .  They were still all on the original display card, and I think I paid about $10 US for the set.  I'm not entirely sure where they are in the house at the moment, but I AM wondering now if it was set of Drawlet nibs.

Beautiful and very informative booklet! Do you have picture of the Drawlet nibs?
